BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – A local bus teacher decided she wanted to do her part in giving back for the holidays.

Kohuth said if you couldn’t donate on Saturday, you can drop off presents to Boardman Schools’ Transportation Office from 9-10 a.m. Monday.

It’s the first time organizing the toy drive.

The collected toys will be donated to the Rescue Mission on Monday, December 16.
